Cerebral Clouds | The Dream Keeper Exhibition

As part of a group photography exhibition, I was asked to create a visual response to the project title ‘Dream Keeper’. Dreaming causes specific areas of the brain to spark ‘hot zones’ of high frequency electrical activity. Using a high-speed camera, I shot underwater explosions and then slowed the footage down to depict a very personal interpretation of the physiological brain activity that happens during the ‘dream state’. Working with the three elements of image, sound and prose, I wanted to draw the viewer in by shooting an art piece that conveyed a heightened state of brain activity and awareness. I wanted to create an ethereal, benign world, separate but ever present, infinite and mysterious - inside an entrancing realm of heavenly light and sound. The artwork was exhibited at the Process Dream Keeper Exhibition as a moving image art installation alongside a series of still images.

Personal Project: Colour Landscapes

In a recent personal project, we set out to explore the pigment effects of acrylic paint. Using water, ink and oil, we manipulated the paint and captured the unfolding story as the liquids interacted. The result was a series of striking organic patterns and colourful cosmic landscapes.
